New to Eldersburg: Cash Today Pawn Shop!

How do you know that your town is on the fast track to suburban decay? When a pawn shop opens up in your shopping center.

Pawn shops, as you know, are places to sell your stuff to get money so that you can pay your mortgage. OR - it's a place to sell the stuff you stole so you can get some cash to buy some heat or a dime bag.

In Eldersburg, I think both situations apply. There are plenty of people in the area who are over-extended on their credit and tapped out and underwater on their mortgage, so selling the leaf blower and granddad's antique screwdriver may make sense. Also, the Randallstown creep effect is in full force, so the latter makes sense as well.

I don't recall what was in this space previously. I know it has been unoccupied for a while. It's right next door to Captain Dan's, so maybe you sell the Garmin you lifted out of the cars in one of the neighborhoods in Eldersburg, then go to Captain Dan's and get a nice Crab Cake sandwich. (I actually inadvertently typed 'crab crack sandwich' - totally unintentional).
